Timber Frame Barn Remodel #8: Seeing the difference

07-17-2018 03:47 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

This last weekend I was able to put a solid 4 hours into the project and it is kind of nice to be able to actually see a noticeable difference. I removed the entire lover level of siding on the back side of the barn. I started slow trying to salvage what I could and damn is that frustrating. I have no idea how those guys on TV make it look so easy. I am trying to salvage enough of the good siding from the exterior to line my wood shop with then all is said and done. Yet it is a monumental tas...

Spalted California Coastal Live Oak Coffe Table

07-17-2018 06:09 AM by highlander33 | 0 comments »

This massive slab is 50” x 32” at it’s widest points , the first picture is after I started sanding and though I’d snap a picture before I was too far along. The second picture is after the first 2 pours of epoxy , that still is , in my eyes so beautiful the way the epoxy brings out the wild natural colors , and grain of this Live Oak

Will get the other section in a moment….you will notice I have the face frame installed. Just 6 sticks of pine.. Glued and screwed in place. I used counter-bored holes, and will fill them wit...

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube

Creating a Workshop #1: Creating a "shop" -- making it up as I go

07-16-2018 01:54 PM by PCDub | 0 comments »

I have a table saw and drill press which are both inside the house next door (to which I have access, l.o.o.o.n.g story…), I have a lathe (acquired in Dec.) in my basement (along with all hand tools), and my bandsaw (acquired in May) is in my garage. (I also have a DeWalt 735 planer but it is not yet set up anywhere.) I had originally thought that I would set up an integrated shop in the basement, and perhaps install a bulkhead door to make it easier to transport stock and finished work...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #6: Getting groovy; cutting out panels; some shaping; and a catastrophe

07-16-2018 02:16 AM by JohnMcClure | 1 comment »

First thing: cleaned up and fitted the tenons on the curved rails. Test-fit the frame: Now it’s time to put panels in those frames. Cutting grooves into the curved rails was a problem I’ve been thinking about since early in the design. I had thought about using a trim router on a purpose-made baseplate to ride the curves, but fortunately I had a rabetting bit that I could use as a slot cutter. Bearing guided – made this very easy on both the straight and curved rails.I di...

07-16-2018 12:24 AM by oldguy2 | 4 comments »

We have a Project. The boy wants to make a Bank box. With a hasp for his lock. Not a bad idea for an 8 year old. So what were the lessons of today. 1. choosing the boards. some 1/2 inch hardwood I had. 2. drawing on paper his idea of a rectangle , actually pretty good. 3. we planned a width from one board and he had to trace the width against the other 3 to get what I would rip the boards to size. 4. we sized the 2 short ends and I cut those. Then with the longer boards. we eyed a le...

Not a bleeding DOMINO!

07-15-2018 11:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, in general (and MY friiend), To all my sceptic friends (both of you…, [-1]), I finally bought a case of Domino tenons… (they all know I have been avoiding the Festool Domino “biscuit joiner” for well over 10+ years), This was on special ($307 reduced to $149 [offer current only at time of posting]) so I couldn’t avoid the bargain… I can now use my laser to engrave some dots on the loose tenons and make REAL DOMINO game pieces. OK. I might have to surrender ...
